Palmerstown cemetery

It is a suburban area of Dublin, Ireland, located to the west of the city centre, catering for the local areas of Palmerstown and Ballyfermot. It is in sharp contrast to the Victorian Cemeteries at Goldenbridge and Glasnevin, showing the change from the larger limestone Celtic Crosses to the smaller black and white marble monuments.

Trust Florist Palmerstown can deliver flowers to a grave within the cemetery at no extra cost. Order online or contact us on + 353 (0) 1 882 6510

History

The parish of Palmerston (Irish: Baile Phámar) has been known by this name since the twelfth century when the lands here were held by the Hospital of St. John the Baptist without Newgate, otherwise known as the Palmer's Hospital, from the name of the founder Ailred the Palmer, or Pilgrim. As part of the Cemeteries remit of burying the dead as bidden by its founder, Daniel O'Connell, the Cemeteries Committee continuously seek to open other Cemeteries and Crematoria. In 1978, to cater for the population of Dublin’s south side, Palmerstown Cemetery was opened. Palmerstown Cemetery, like all the other Cemeteries established by The Dublin Cemeteries Committee after this time, is a lawn cemetery – consisting of landscaped graves, with all graves accessible by paths.
